När: Fredag 9 oktober, 14-16
Var: Zoom https://ju-se.zoom.us/j/66579850173

This presentation will discuss the advantages of a ‘literary turn’ in the primary language classroom, using challenging picturebooks with young learners. I will show how the language teacher can employ picturebooks to promote imaginative response, visual literacy, learning literacy and mental flexibility through transaction with text and creative writing.  

Cognitive depth and affective depth are important for moving language into permanent long-term memory. I will illustrate how this can be inspired by the picturebooks Zoo (Anthony Browne), Mouse Bird Snake Wolf (David Almond & Dave McKean),and The Day the Crayons Quit (Drew Daywalt & Oliver Jeffers). 

Alla välkomna!
